Forum: vj_loops Subject: How to have the flash player but no other derivative files

Yes, here's the best course of action if you want the flash player, but no other derivs.

- upload your item as usual
- choose an appropriate license
- wait for derivatives to be made (usually takes a few hours)
- check out your item, remove all derivatives except the .flv files and .gif/thumbs files, check item back in

If you need information about how to check your item out, it can be found in the FAQs at http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#262

And keep the thumbs as well, I'd suggest. People seem to like to print those out.

Thanks for all your help!

Argh, our http://www.archive.org/details/68_Vintage_Fairlight_VJ_Loops_by_VJzoo just regenerated all the useless derived files again for no reason! We hadn't FTPd or anything, they just reappeared. Grrr. It was painful enough to delete them all once.
